What pump for DIY foutain

I was reading through the most recent American Science and Surplus catolog and saw something they called a funnel tray http://www.sciplus.com/singleItem.cf...LogFrom=Search. This is basically a tray with a funnel spout at one end. I was thinking of gluing a couple of these together to create a waterfall, my only problem is that I am not sure what to use as a pump. Any ideas?

How about a Dolphin HHS9400, that would make a spectacular fountain. LOL

Or more seriously you probably only need 50-100 gph for a fountain like that, maybe a mini jet or a micro jet by Maxijet? They would also be inconspicuous in size.

I have a fountain in my house with a RIO powerhead, it is silent as can be, has been running for almost 5 years and seems to be going strong.
